Gamers, get ready, because Power UP festival is back in Manchester by popular demand.
The video games festival is in Manchester this summer at the Science & Industry Museum, where guests will have the chance to play some of the most popular games from the past 40 years, including Pong, Pacman, Minecraft and Mario.
Instead of a short stint this year, Power UP is back for the WHOLE summer. You’ll be able to get your game on, challenge your friends or even just test your own personal high scores until 1 September 2019.
There are 90-minutes sessions available, as well as adult-only evenings sessions (7 and 21 August between 19.00–21.30) and half-day sessions.
For the first time, Power UP features handheld consoles such as the Gameboy and the Atari Lynx.
Mark Cutmore, Head of Commercial Experiences, said: “We know that Power Upis one of our most popular events of the year, and with sessions selling out for the past few years we decided that a two-week run just wasn’t enough.
“So I’m delighted to announce that Power Up will be in residence for the entire summer, giving more opportunities to play than ever before.”
